Congratulations to Play Writing Competition Winners

Issued: 26.02.19

The winners of the play writing competition 'Rough Cuts and Scratches', a joint project between Lincs Inspire Arts and Libraries Development and Breakwater Theatre Company and funded by Arts Council England, have now been confirmed following audience vote!  

Last Friday saw Cleethorpes Library host a night of theatre, as six scripts battled it out for the chance to win a commission and have their plays developed further with New Perspectives Theatre Company to be performed more completely in October.

We can now proudly announce that the winners of the competition are Byronn Pratt with his play titled 'Death Regs' and Andy Moseley with his play titled 'Make up'.  Congratulations to both of these and well done to all the competition entrants, who made possible an entertaining evening of theatre. 

Andy Evans, Founder and Co-Director of Breakwater Theatre Company said: "I am delighted that we will be developing and producing two extremely high quality plays. They are very different from each other but offer a challenge to the company and we look forward to working on the final pieces."

Due to the popularity of the competition, ‘Rough Cuts and Scratches Round 2’ will follow up Friday’s event.  The second instalment will be on March 29th at Cleethorpes Library and will also carry an array of cash prizes.
